How do you getting started with list building? I recommend AWeber. Simply drag-and-drop to get your email business up-and-running and you can even build your email list without having your website or blog, try AWeber free for 30-day with my affiliate referral.


Why you need an email list?

Because you need your own traffic source,

Social Media can send you tons of traffic.

You need to somehow drive that traffic without Social Media.

How do you do it?

Build an email list today. All smart business owners turn their traffic into an email list…

AKA: Your own empire.


List building is for all kind of businesses 

Try to think of these,

  • What do you use to register Facebook?
  • Why Twitter need your email address to sign-up Twitter?
  • Why even League of Legends [LOL], the gaming industry needs your email address to play the game?

it’s pretty obvious that all kinds of businesses are building an email list.

Why not you?

In fact, building an email list is cost-effective compared to the amount you spend on advertising.

Instead of send traffic straight to your products,

why not send them to the 1-page-website to capture their email address and follow up with them?



The secrets of list building are reveals, but

Everybody is doing the same thing, they are building an email list


Why should one give you their email address but why not others?

And why,

Why should some give you their inactive or fake email address instead of their real and active one?

It’s all about what you are sharing with them once they’re on your email list.


We do not want to have information overload right now.

All you need to now is getting started to build an email list.


List Building: #3 Steps Getting Started Without A Website

list building without a website

Step #1: Building an Email List Today

You will need an email provider. Expert with the list size of 100,000 email addresses, they’re using AWeber. Thus, I highly recommend you to check out AWeber.

AWeber used to have the $1 trial…

Step #2: Build an Opt-in Form

Without an opt-in form, there are no ways for traffic to turn into subscribers.

Head over to AWeber, to build an opt-in form using their drag-and-drop feature to getting started.

  • Tip: your opt-in form headline is important. Make sure to have a clear headline. An example: instead of “Learn How to Lose Weight Fast” turns it into “3 Exercises To Lose 10% Body Fat with 2-3 Pounds Equipment”.

Once you have your opt-in form published. You will find a link,

Start to use that link with step #3.


Step #3: Traffic

There are two methods of getting traffic, getting traffic isn’t hard at all but until you know the steps:

  • Free traffic
  • Paid traffic


Free Traffic

With the free method, if you’re not able to use paid traffic then you will have to exchange with your time.

Start to promote your opt-in form link, share them on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms.

You can also comment on other blogs.

Include your opt-in form link in your forum signature.

The free method can also become more complicated as well, this what I’m doing right now, writing articles and providing value.

Stay tune, though.

I’m going to slowly share everything with you here. – Just don’t overwhelm yourself with information overload.


Paid Traffic:

Use “Click to Website” at Facebook Ads. You can start as low as $5 a day budget.

Paid traffic is fast to get traffic to your opt-in link, but you need to learn about Facebook Ads as well.

You need to learn:

  • How to target the right audience?
  • Target the right country with quality traffic.
  • How to setup Facebook pixel to track your result?
  • Targeting the right audience is also important.

With all these, you can head over to Udemy, and you will find courses that you need.


Now your email business is up-and-running and it’s ready to go


Don’t focus on make money online instead focus on building an email list…

Engage your email list by sending them email daily. Provide free content and educate your email subscribers, then endorse products to your email list.

Remember this:

The bigger your email list gets, the more money you will make.

Keep learning guys.

  6. Good article about list building. Target audience is more important than normal visitors.

    1. Vicky,

      Target audience is important after all.

      P.S I’ve notice you haven’t got a Gravatar and you easily sign-up at Gravatar using the email address that you use for commenting, and commenting around blog using that email.

      Benefit: You will attract more visitors to your website by sharing a little of your personality.
